11. Cleaning coal pollutants
Ya never heard of such a thing?!?!?

Many a power generator has undertaken the technology of emission control at their coal fired plants. Just not all of them. Recently, the state of North Carolina passed a 'Clean Smokestacks' act which all major power producers agreed was the right thing to do.

As far as nuke pollution staying in one place... it radiates. For thousands of years. It doesn't stay in one place. It contaminates anything close to it and if that object moves, or is moved, the contamination goes with it. Not only can we not afford to clean it up we don't know how!

Oh wait... we are moving it.... to Nevada! Yep, we're gonna hide it underground there. All the tons of nuke waste will be moving about the country via our only available technology we have to control it. Surely you heard about that, right?
